. chairman paul ryan has worked hard with the budget committee to outline the kind of reforms we would put in place to bring real fiscal responsibility here in washington. and the american people understand that you can't continue to spend money that you don't have. it's time for us to come to a plan that will, in fact, balance the budget over the next 10 years. it's our commitment to the american people and we hope the senate will do their budget as they should have done over the last four years. >> good evening. as the speaker said, our conference will look to vote on a measure tomorrow that will temporarily extend the debt ceiling so that we can see the senate actually begin to do its job. for several years now, i think it's about four, the senate has not passed a budget. and all we're saying is, if the president and the senate -- if this country needs to incur more debt, senate, please show us your plan to repay that debt. please show us your plan to control spending. it's about time that we come together, do our work, the american people expect no less. that's why we'll insist on the
myself with the remarks of my colleague, mr. ryan. but i would also mention the caveat that has gotten a bit of attention is the no-pay clause without having the senate or the house, either respective chamber, not pass the budget and whether or not that meets the constitutionality, the confines of the 27th amendment. i'm not a constitutional attorney. i am not an attorney of any type. we've -- our committee has looked at this quite a bit on our side. we think that placing the members' pay in escrow until such time as that particular chamber passes a budget is constitutional. it meets the constitutionality of the 27th amendment. as long as we -- the member actually is paid by the end of the 113th congress. there's been some questions. somebody asked me just on the floor actually for instance -- let's say, you know, x amount of times passed before the payment would be made whether or not that congress should be -- whether or not the escrow account would be accruing interest for the members and if the interest is not accrued, would that be a problem with the 27th amendment? but interest o
did this now rather than waiting until the very end because, mr. ryan, i don't even know -- and you don't have to respond to this -- but i don't know i just can't do that any more. thank you very much. >> thank you very much. in defense of me asking you three or four as it were to come up here, i'm delighted that we did this now rather than waiting until the very end because, mr. ryan, i don't even know -- and you don't have to respond to this -- but i don't know what day we have to have it ready. and so i viewed that as committee chairman, speaking with each other, including our republican leadership, that we were trying to do the correct thing and to make sure the administration read us as clear. this is not a poison pill. this would be something that the senate would have to agree to and public comments out of the senate by senate democrats have indicated the willingness to accept it. >> right. that's one of the reasons we are doing it now because we don't want to bring it to brinksmanship. the statement of administration policies, snap, we use acronyms around here, we don't know
the gentleman representing the ways and means committee, mr. ryan, who's also -- paul ryan, chairman of the house budget committee, in testimony said that he intended to make sure that he would produce a bill exactly supporting what we are trying to do here today and would bring that to the floor as would be faithful in doing that. look, maybe people are upset that we're putting their pay at risk. maybe people are upset because it wasn't their idea, but the bottom line is is that paul ryan, john boehner, eric cantor, the rules committee yesterday said we think it's a good bill and we were joined bihari reid, the senate majority -- joined by harry reid, the senate majority leader. when the senate majority leader agrees with the house republican leadership and join with them in trying to make sure that we get our job done, i think that's a rare day. i think that's a good day when we can work together, when we can bring legislation that the senate openly welcomes and might i add, the president of the united states, president obama would sign this legislation. and he said so in the stat
republican vice president nominee paul ryan. he talks about the future of the republican party. representative ryan spoke saturday at a conference hosted by the national review institute. this is about 25 minutes. >> all right, ladies and gentlemen, we are about to hear from our next speaker who is congressman paul ryan. [applause] when congressman ryan was picked as mitt romney's running mate last year, he became a subject of fascination. everything about him, extending even to his workout routine which is the p90x workout routine. and for those of you who aren't fit enough to have a workout routine, it sounds like it's some advanced piece of military weaponry -- [laughter] or if you happen not to work out an hour every day before breakfast, the p90x, from what i understand, involves this whole theory is you confuse your muscles, as they call it, by constantly trying a new and different workout every day. and we have evidence that paul ryan is very loyal to this workout regime because, actually, his most innovative workout has been caught on tape and broadcast very broadly. i'
's the alternative and we have got a better one. >> there's some talk paul ryan said he thinks that obama is trying to delegitimize the republican party. >> republicans believe that their pathway is the right one to expand the american dream. these battles are going to continue. but showing the conservatism gets results and that liberalism has regularly failed is our best chance. and the best advise i give young voters. they graduate from college, they want a job. if you believe in that one, you're a young person, we should explain why these republican ideas of job creation, reform and higher education and reducing the american debt, we're the ones talking about that, young people, please vote for us. we have got to do a better job with it. >> i think part of the problem is that people sense or they think that if you're a republican, you believe in 15 p different things, but it's like a chinese menu, but all those things you believe in, and it's not true. i know pro-life republicans, i know pro choice republicans. >> let's remember that the gop was started on ending slay ini. when it comes to immi
as a contrast to some of the other big names, marco rubio and paul ryan. he has a good education reform going down there that is popular with the gop base. he is a devout catholic which helps in states like out oiowa. it really is focused on developing problem solving and he can be very effective. he's gotten better as a speaker which is also important. host: thank you for correcting me. he was speaking at the republican national committee winter meeting. tell us about other republicans getting was right now. guest: chris christie is certainly a media darling. the more he does to the popular with the media, he is being perceived as a good governor but it is hurting him with the gop base and he has gone under fire as of late. he has been fighting hard for funding for hurricane sandy release. he came out firing right after new year's ripping into john boehner for not getting the bill passed quickly enough. he has a status of, and doing what's best for my state, which will be good in getting reelected. but rand paul said he looks like he was just money grubbing for his state. he was also very cr
to be an orphan. he certainly has had an opportunity to bring forward a budget or bring up the ryan budget. he's been in a leadership position. he's leaving the senate without fiscal responsibility. they are the ones that haven't passed a budget in over 1,000 days and counting. >>gretchen: wasn't he on the -- was he on one of the super committees or the debt commission? was he on that particular commission to try to come up with a bipartisan plan? >> you know, i apologize. i wasn't on it. ryan was. the fact is, though, that that committee came up with a mixture of tax increases which we've had and spending cuts which we haven't had and haven't had any cooperation with democrats in the senate to begin doing. what you saw, just before we left for the district work period for various activities like meeting with world economic leaders here in davos is we moved it 90 days so we could attempt one more time to pass a budget, something that would allow us to let public and private leaders around the world have confidence in what our spending is going to be and that in fact we're going to pay our debt
wyden worked with the house budget committee chairman paul ryan to develop a similar proposal in the 112th congress. so while there may be some resistance to this particular idea, it has enjoyed bipartisan support. and finally, number five, we need to strengthen medicaid for patients and states through realistic reforms. setting per-capita limits on federal medicaid spending would put the medicaid program on a sustainable budget, and when combined with increased flexibility for patient-centered reforms at the state level, would reduce costs and improve patient care across the board. and as with other ideas i have mentioned, this is a bipartisan proposal. in 1995, president clinton introduced a medicaid reform plan that included a per-capita cap on federal medicaid spending. at that time, all 46 democratic senators, including several that are still serving today, signed a letter to president clinton expressing support for this proposal. in addition, in october of last year, former democratic senate majority leader tom daschle publicly expressed support for per-capita caps on medicaid spen
. >> we're number one again, but we're not going to be the same until we get ryan kelly back. so we're going to have to watch that. that's the key to whether we go deep into the postseason. >> i got home yesterday and i turned on cincinnati was up six or seven over syracuse. they had just beat louisville. and you said, you know what? if i watch this they're going to lose, and they did. >> you're the curse. >> joe, who do you like in the super bowl? i want to get that out there first. >> i -- i -- i'm inclined to see the 49ers, but then i saw the ravens and the ravens and are tough and that guy is good. flacco is really good. new england is no pushover and they manhandled them, you know, to my chagrin. i was hoping for a patriots/49ers matchup. weren't you? >> no. i wanted the brother thing. but i can't decide who is the stronger team. i'm thinking baltimore probably. but we'll have to wait and see. >> yeah because, you know, atlanta showed me something that they didn't prevail, but they looked good. they were up 17-0. what can you tell me about, john, my fantasy, at that tacking to
, just taking stuff from the federal government and including paul ryan. he used that word during the campaign. and not a loan. i think it was clear, the president was directly responding to those conservatives who have used the word takers. >> let me give the president a simple test. he talked a lot about the work ethic. i have been advocating that we add a provision to unemployment that if you sign up for unemployment compensation, you have to take a course offered by a business in order to improve your job skills so at the end of your unemployment compensation you have a greater workforce capability and frankly 99 weeks of compensation is a two-year associate college degree. paying people 99 weeks. i said to the president, is there a common ground here? i agree with him, medicare is an earned benefit. social security is an earned benefit. medicaid is not. he should not lump them together. it's not about taking. how do we liberate poor americans, give them the capability to be prosperous so we don't have to worry about it because they are rising, working, doing the right things.
of the pen nis are heads up. good luck, right? >> exactly. people behind the project, ryan lang and emily belden are with us now. good morning to both of you. >> hey, guys. how are you? >> hey, matt. how are you guys? hey, savannah. >> this is really clever, just my two cents. i know. >> penny for your thoughts. >> exactly. a lifetime of jokes like that. seriously, what made you decide to take this on? >> it was kind of one of those things like we were sitting around joking about what we could do to redo the bedroom and we're like, i don't know. there was a jar of pennies on the counter. i said why don't we just stick those things to the floor? that was pretty much it. >> no more unique motivation? >> she came home one day and i had already started doing it. >> guess we're doing it. once you start this project, you have to finish it. >> so how long did it take? 60,000 pennies, all glued down, one at a time. how long did it take you to do this thing? >> one at a time. it took about three to four months, which we decided was about 130 hours. >> it was a long time. by the time we were done w
